Charleston Real Estate Agent Megan Callaghan Is Named to REALTOR Magazine’s Prestigious 30 Under 30 Class for 2019

Callaghan, of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Great Expectations Realty, is honored as one of America’s 30 rising stars in residential real estate

CHARLESTON, WV (April 2, 2019) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices today announced that Megan Callaghan, an agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Great Expectations Realty, has been named to REALTOR® Magazine’s 2019 Class of 30 Under 30 rising stars in residential real estate.

Callaghan was chosen from candidates across America who were judged on their skill, success, creativity, community involvement and leadership in their careers.

“I am truly honored and excited to be named to the 30 Under 30 Class of 2019,” said Callaghan. “I set 30 Under 30 Class membership as a goal of mine when I joined the industry in 2013. For me, this honor and my overall success as an agent result from my drive to go beyond the call of duty for every client. Such consistency and reliability help me be the “Forever Agent” for clients and their referrals.”

Callaghan, who serves the greater Charleston market, is the first real estate professional from West Virginia to be named to a 30 Under 30 list. “We are proud of Megan as she is so deserving of this recognition,” said Michael Callaghan, broker, Great Expectations Realty. “In a short period of time she has grown her business with hard work and dedication. As important, she loves the business and helping people buy and sell homes. Such joy helps her be her very best for clients.”

Callaghan generated $6.4 million in sales volume in 2018 and was active in the West Virginia Association of REALTORS® as well as in Generation Charleston, which helps recruit young professionals to the Charleston area. “We are losing population every year, mostly among younger generations. I got involved with Generation Charleston to recruit and retain young professionals in the area. I think the first step to committing to West Virginia is homeownership.”

Gino Blefari, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, congratulated Callaghan on her achievement. “We are proud of Megan and the passion and professionalism she pours into every real estate transaction,” Blefari said. “She is a wonderful ambassador of the entire real estate industry and a powerful example of leadership.” REALTOR® Magazine will feature its 30 Under 30 Class members in its May edition.
